Notes statement

Best efforts were made to compile the apparatus from the editor's footnotes. However, certain information [as to the start of certain apparatus entries and as to the variant forms in manuscripts not cited] has been lacking. To ensure a more faithful correspondence with the variant readings given by Dottin, it would have been necessary to tag some of them as one apparatus entry within another. Since TEI restrictions do not allow for this, it had to be abandoned. In case of doubt it is recommended to consult the manuscripts.
